By BBN Staff: The Belize Coast Guard took a proactive approach to fight the COVID-19 pandemic this week, by tackling the issue of border jumpers in northern Belize.
Acting Commandant Gregory Soberanis, accompanied by an operations team headed out to Corozal to meet with village leaders to discuss collaborating on initiatives to discourage border jumping.
Soberanis explained that maritime border security is given priority for the Coast Guard as it forms a part of its national defense mandate.
